The number of daily coronavirus infections and fatalities in Pakistan has been steady for some weeks hovering around 4,000 cases and 100 deaths with no signs of any let-up.
NCOC head Asad Umar said that single-day vaccination crossed one and a half million for the first time.
“Yesterday 1.59 million vaccinations were carried out. Both first dose and second dose vaccinations yesterday were highest ever with 1 million 71 thousand and 519 thousand respectively,” he shared the news in a tweet.
vaccination targets set for 24 large cities by end September . Partial vaccination 60% & full vaccination 40% of eligible population. These are tough targets, specially for full vaccination but achievable with a focused effort and high quality execution inshallah— Asad Umar (@Asad_Umar) September 1, 2021
